Montalban plays a French or at least an Imperial officer in this film which tells several stories as a band of pro-Maximillian supporters are leaving Mexico as Juarez' troops approach.
One of the interesting footnotes to this film is that Sally Blain, sister of Loretta Young and of Georgina Young appears in it. She was soon to be Montalban's sister in law when the young Mexican actor married Georgina.
Montalban was dashing and handsome but his character was very one dimensional.
It was one of the rare Mexican movies that was semi-sympathetic to Emperor Maxmillian.
